Looks simple issue but not sure why I am getting confused..

Tell me this
open OE
go to some email which has some attachment.
save that attachment... ( you should be knowing the file extension of that attachment, dont you)
now you say that attachment opens in notepad. what you do is , right-click that attachment and do open with and choose the application it needs to be opened with..

Now see what happens

Do you know what the original attachment is say like word ..

do this
open my computer
go to tools > folder options > file types
scroll down to DOC
click on DOC to enable it
now you should able to click ion "change" and select the application to open DOC which will be ofcourse WORD

so instead of DOC , you should now select the attachment type and then open it

I donot understand this. In outlook express , when you get an attachment , you should be able to see only SAVE attachments options when you click the attachment shown with paper clip in the preview pane or if you open the email in a separate window, you would be seeing only OPEN.. How did you change the association of the file attachment

Delete this registry key:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.eml

Now open any attachment. It should open naturally. If it doesn't, it will ask for the name of the application to open with. Select Outlook Express/IncrediMail and select the checkbox - Always use this pro....
